how many fish?
i have a 36 gal. tank and imwondering how many fish i can have without being over stocked. i was thinking of 3 figure eight puffers and 3 bumble bee gobies. would this be ok?
or i was thinking of 2 green spotted puffers and a coulple bumble bee gobies?
which would be better for my size tank? thanks for the help:-D
These two fish are not compatible with each other. Puffers are considered to be aggressive fish and bumble bee gobys are considered a peaceful fish. The gobys will be eatin within a matter of minutes if you put them together.
well would it be ok to just keep 2 figure eight puffers?
Keeping two together should be fine, just make sure that there are enough hiding places to try and keep the aggression down.
If the tank is set up and the gobies go in first and get settled, adding the figure 8 puffers after that will be fine imho. They will see it that the gobies were there first and be less inclined to see them as food. Plenty of planting to break up the line of sight for the puffers will also help. Keep the puffers well fed and I can't see any issues at all with that combo.
Obviously, some puffers are definately species only, but fig 8's aren't too bad. Orange chromis are also a possible tankmate or florida flagfish which are feisty enough to level up with the puffers, the latter of which I have also kept with my puffers.
Try out this site: AQADVISOR
It will guide you through compatabilty selection and stocking levels.
Have fun and be PATIENT!
